Diagnosing depression can be tough for doctors, depending on the patient and the level of their depression, and if they are currently going to individual counseling. Hollywood seems to always show us the glamorous side of life, the money, cars, houses, etc. Celebrities are human too, and often open up about their depression and individual counseling.
Ginger Zee, chief meteorologist at ABC News, recently opened up about her battle with depression in a her new book, “Natural Disaster: I Cover Them. I am One.” While her career was on the rise, she was in an abusive relationship and battling depression. Zee checked herself into a hospital, which included individual counseling while hospitalized, because, as she explained, “I had a disease. I will always have that disease.
